You know what's funny? Alan Cassidy (Ex Abigail Williams) currently plays for The Black Dahlia Murder and Zach Gibson (Ex TBDM) played for Abigail Williams, hahaha! Both are great bands :)

Sounds like Last of the Mohicans @ 12:25

This is what I call a master piece is so perfect to get lost with the guitar and meditate
Jo Blackened
One of my all time favourite tracks! It still takes my breath away no matter how many times I hear it.
Krystofer Robin
Absolutely not. I think this is one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.
Shadow Liege
Im fucking ordering this NOW! I lost interest after they lost their epic musicianship on the last one, but it's back and i didnt even know it until now
L. KoNg
intro reminds me bioshock, don't know why
Maurise Stephens
I love listening to this when im stoned Abigail Williams ROX!!!!

Wow!

I have loved Abigail Williams since the 2007 EP, and i have also always loved atmospheric black metal. That being said, i just find it funny that they purposefully used "sloppier" sounding drums and a more drowned-out sound in this album so that they could take a more atmospheric route. I really like the album, but I personally don't think they had to do that to their production, it just sounds like they are trying to fit in with the other more underground bands. It would have been nice to hear this atmospheric album with their previous clean production. I am sure that some one-man black metal projects sound the way they do because they self-produce everything. If they had access to all the resources AW had, maybe they'd have a different sound. I am speaking hypothetically of course, I just think that it is funny that they started super clean and precise to the more drowned out sound that many atmospheric bands have. I can't complain because it is what i like. I just think it is a bit backwards..

I'm sorry but the band info you have listed here is not correct. Ian Jekelis isn't "Ex-God Dethroned". Joining a couple of tours as a stand-in for a short time in 2010, an ex-band member does not make.

Fucking AWESOME!
rwfsmith
Oh, definitely. My e-penis is HUGE, but my real one... meh.
rwfsmith
How small is it? I bet mine is smaller.
Alan Cassidy
They used to be but are now far from. That's from the singers mouth.
liquidpig
My god, where has this band been all my life
Abendschein
You've got a lot of balls to say that metal of any sort is for those who have hope for nothing. A lot of balls.
Krystofer Robin
The whole song, end to end, is the most... beautiful thing... I have ever heard.
Krystofer Robin
Nothing wrong with metal tears, dammit.
Tyler Harris
The sound itself is a derivitive of "necrosound". Back in the first wave it was to rebel against everything which also included production quality. Take Burzum or Darkthorne for example. This is their offspring.
Tyler Harris
Exactly. I think this is fairly decent compared to others though.
dudeman2777
They really have outdone themselves with this! This is amazing!
AutopsySuiteable
"and as we move past the darkness, I cannot hear a sound. We've been trapped in the belly of a Leviathan but the beast is now bleeding out slowly into the cosmos." This line is talking about humans freeing themselves and becoming actual human beings. I guess I don't see what is so hopeless about that. Abigail Williams lyrics can seem about darkness, emptiness, despair etc but if you pay attention and know a thing or two about the metaphysical side of things you will clearly see that isn't so.
AutopsySuiteable
"The earth was beautiful on fire now purified" This is obviously speaking of the alchemical flame of transmutation and not an actual destructive fire. "These are truly the last days of time" This is describing the end of the actual perception of time which is currently limiting us in this experience.
dustmouse
I got the first EP and I liked it. I got In the Shadow... and I thought it was okay. I just listened to this song and I am speechless. Amazing. These guys have really found themselves. Hats off to you, Mr. Sorceron.

The production of black metal, in my mind, occurs for two reasons - One, to drastically enhance the atmosphere that the song creates, and two, to fight against the ever-escalating trend of producing metal songs like pop songs. I don't know what you're talking about when you say black metal vocals are bad; I love them.
missheavymetal1
Powerful song, amazing from beginning to end.
kanskejonasidag1
Best song of the best record of the year. Seriously.

Trve Atmospheric Black Metal.

An absolute juggernaut.
RRRRRAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH
@DirectingShoe22 lol
RRRRRAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH
@FromDeathBelow naw, this one looks much more like stained glass instead of just a design...
Jono Hill
No they're not satanic, if you look at the lyrics it's all very poetic and beautiful in this album, they tend to sound very dark however
Ignacio Torres
Best 17:32 minutes of my life ever
Tisrok55
Abigail Williams evolves with every album and they sound fucking amazing with each one. These guys can play anything and sound awesome.
Tisrok55
If ANYBODY could shred on a banjo it'd be Abigail Williams. I miss Samus and their sexy keyboardist though..
Cody Hatfield
Now I have to see them playing with gorgoroth. The fuck?
Magus CR
FUUUCK!! THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!! lml
Joshua Atherton
This. Is. Amazing!
Justin Powers
@MoshersRage Omg it totally does haha!
Justin Powers
I don't know why but the violin parts remind me of Bioshock for some reason, but this is a great song.
John White
Reminds me of Amber Asylum. Great track.
D'n'B is sexy
This band is continuously evolving, i enjoy all their albums but each new release is even better than the last, I cannot wait til their next one, but this one will be played over and over until then, such a great song as well.
Gand-Alf(InfernalFrost)
They remind me of Emperor
Mark Sirapob
240p for Atmospheric Version!!
flicker of biscuits
I know of no other band that has changed their style so much over a span of four albums, yet I still cannot stop listening to each second of every song they have produced. The aura of this band is one to not be fucked with. True greatness, my friends. (p.s. - I do miss those keyboards something fierce)
banshee
beautyful Death!!!!!
Tyranny684
Idgaf what anyone says, this band shows true musicianship. Most bands sell out over the course of their career. This band has done the complete opposite of selling out. They are exceptional live too. Fuck all of you who think your too kvlt to enjoy real music.
Tyranny684
RIP :(
Xyluss Nelms
Why did you put quotations around 'special helmet'?
zarucarsha
And don't forget the Flaming Lips' six hour psychedelic song, "Found a Star on the Ground." :P
Ragnaras
Awesome!!! I can't await to have the full record! :D
Raiderblack
This is EPIC!!!
Mongolian Dragon
Is it wrong if I say I relax to music like this?
Maurise Stephens
I thought I'd never Like Black Metal..... But This Band is Fucking Awsome :D
Daniel Hasman
godspeed you black emperor rip off
Paulo Carneiro
uma das melhores musicas que o rock já deu aos homens/mulheres, e eu nem sou fan da banda nem do estilo deles, mas este tema está no patamar dos Deuses.
John West Tuna
The album art looks a bit like Iron Man
Pingu616
FUCK. ME. SIDEWAYS. This was needed. Beautiful.
Kelso King
I feel like an idiot that I haven't listened to this album prior to now. This. Is. Amazing.
RasKiddo
i fell asleep... it is good tho!
blackgoetia
this is excellent music
Alli
That is some epic shit right there.
mayachun
They played this song live yesterday, fuckin' awesome.
Tim Heskith
I think America should stick to its sludge when it comes to atmospheric metal
Juggernaut76
@colorblindvids I totally agree with you. It needs to evolve too because that style of metal had its place and time, but it has passed. This songs plods on slowly a little too much for my taste, but the idea is good. I still need blazing fast sections and solos, but the scale of things is right.
sickandtwisted058
that whole part in the middle where they just don't seem to know what to do
thegerou
Exceptional!
Amir Palma
This is so beautiful.

I love this album

My brother's ada was in the band Bjorn I'm telling the honest to god truth
James Anderson
Someone tell me what the album cover is, i cant tell
Luis Iniguez
close minded; no. asshole; doesn't apply. Certainty about a genre that only growls about darkness and emptiness; pure opinion and self-explanatory through song. Therefore, this music is for the people who spend their days hopeless. I'm not a closed minded asshole who listens to Tyga, Lil' Wayne, or any artists of that category, that automatically judges music because it has screams or growls. I judge it by lyrics and music. They're talented and play good but it's too depressing and lyrically sad
Jeremy Belter
you know whats awesome? the  guys in Abigail that are ex- nachtmystium give the band an epicness to their sound. you know how nachtmystium was influenced by pink floyd and shit...yes....i love this
French Montana
This is a timeles classic. 10 out of 10, marvellous.
blackpagan100
You must be taking the piss!? nobody could be that stupid??
MoshersRage
@mymomplaysfarmville it's definitely a violin
MoshersRage
@bladelazoe the part at 8:12 when it got all happy reminded me of the Silent Cartographer level on the first Halo. great fucking song
M. Troncoso
This is such a masterpiece...this makes me grateful for every single circumstance in life that happened to put this song together and for allowing me to be able to enjoy it.
ivos155
12:10 Last of The Mohicans theme....great black metal magic...
Nectratoplixs
Just attended a show and saw these guys for the first time. I wish I had an opportunity to listen to this NOT on fucking youtube. Good shit tho
Beta4Life
This might be the greatest song I have ever experienced. And I do mean experienced, this isn't a song you simply "listen" to. Abigail Williams gives me hope for America metal. In two weeks I am taking a trip to Finland, and I honestly never thought I would be listening to an American band while I am there, this Abigail Williams album will surely change that!
lukemci1
so amazing
zwortaymon
I listened to that song a first time, I loved it. I've just listened to it for the second time, I really took the time to be in the song and I felt as if I was in another universe. It is so powerfull, so well made! I'm going to listen to more songs of that band, I'm going to be addict!

My lord god.... this song truly draws all the energy i feel whenever i think about the crucible, or the salem with trials. This song was truly perfectly crafted.
Peter Aldrich
I think this is kind of original. Nothing written is ever totally original anyway. Do you feel the music? If you don't then move on.
arkempire
then why did you go to the video?
